February 2020

In February I payed a visit to the most Northeastern part of the city to photograph the Bridgeburg neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA for WHYY’s Keystone Crossroads Embedded 2020 series.

Reuters send me to the Innovation Health & Design Lab at University of Delaware STAR Campus in Newark, Delaware to photograph graduate student Haobo Zhang working on his thesis on the challenge of designing transgender underwear.

The month ended with an announcement of representatives of Safehouse of an (tentative) opening of a supervised injection facility in South Philadelphia. A plan that ultimately ended up in the freezer after generating some backslash from local residents.

This Monthly Production gallery highlights a selection of impactful documentary and news photography stories captured by Philadelphia based Dutch photojournalist Bastiaan Slabbers.
